Rain stopped play and the mediator process copped a flogging - but on the plus side, at least last night’s Australia-Sri Lanka one-day international gave rise to a record-breaking beer snake.

The sipping serpent made its way round the Sydney Cricket Ground during an evening break in play to mass cheers, with its two halves eventually being joined in a triumph of plastic engineering.

Scientist seeks female surrogate in order to make a Neanderthal baby

A scientist is hoping to recruit a woman he hopes will be the surrogate to a Neanderthal baby he plans to clone. ‘I have already managed to attract enough DNA from fossil bones to reconstruct the DNA of the human species largely extinct,’ he told German magazine Der Spiegel. ‘Now I need an adventurous female human.’

The ‘adventurous female’ would be implanted with a cloned human stem cell that had parts of the Neanderthal genome in it.

Japanese man bit snake-possessed son to death

A 53-year-old man has been accused of biting his adult son to death to get rid of a "snake haunting him".

TV Asahi said Katsumi Nagaya seriously injured his son, Takuya, on Friday at the younger man's apartment in Anjo, central Japan, by head-butting and biting him after the 23-year-old began writhing around and claiming to be a serpent.

Takuya was taken to hospital but declared dead a short time later, the broadcaster said.

The suspect reportedly told police he had attacked his son in order to remove the snake from his mind.
